From arranger and guitarist Peter Sprague: “Estrada Do Sol,” road to the sun, is our path to the enlightened music of Antônio Carlos Jobim. My dad had Jobim’s bossa nova on the turntable and as a kid, even while I was in the trenches with rock music, Jobim’s music touched me deeply. There’s something magic about the rhythm of samba coupled with the harmonic wealth of jazz that seduces the ear and makes us live upgraded lives. Listen to Corcovado and tell me there isn’t divine beauty hovering in the airwaves. For this concert, we explore the full spectrum of Antônio’s vast wealth of songs, including “Agua De Beber,” “Wave,” “Waters of March,” “Girl From Ipanema,” “Desifinado,” “One Note Samba,” and the list goes off into space. I’ve even put together a mega medley that touches down to various gorgeous locales of Jobim-dom. Almost hilarious!
